the hard thing for me, with shows, is that most bands/artists who actually do make it out to Oregon come to Portland. Well, that's two hours away, which may not sound like much, but when you dont have a car, or a liscense, then you're screwed. And if it's during school/work time. just a few more years and i'll be good to go, i hope.
My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.

No, I love Death Cab, The Postal Service, etc. - I just didn't agree that him joing The Bens would necessarily make them a credible band when they already (in my opinion) are. I mean, if he did join The Bens, that'd be awesome, but it'd make scheduling, etc. wayyyyyy more difficult. I'd love to see him solo, but tickets looked pretty expensive (and, obviously, he's not playing here...).

What?! But, but, it's for my birthday. *lip quivers* I don't have a billion dollars.
*in her best Lucy voice* "Waaaaaaah!"

How about settling for me doing the same for you come July?

Yep.  Only if I get a billion dollars.

Welcome to the boards oujoe. Just wondering what you thought of the mute math show....


and, this Weird Al talk reminds me, Weird Al is playing Summerfest the same day as Ben. This makes me dilemna filled.

I'm seeing Ben Kweller in just over a week as part of Blues n Roots festival!!  Yessssss! Would love it even better if I didn't have to see him as part of the festival though.  I want a BK-headliner show!   John Mayer's at the Blues n Roots as well but not the same day as BK  :(

I'll send on your apologies Allison, for missing his gig the other week.

Ummm...The Whitlams with WASO in November.  Saw Augie March with WASO last month.  Saw INXS last week. 
*Mutters*...Must investigate who's coming to town between BK and Whitlams.  It's a very big gap with no concerts to attend..
It's easy to be easy and free when it doesn't mean anything...

why thank you for your kind welcome

i didnt get to see much of the mute math show, the person i was going with who got me the free tickets didnt want to show up till later, and i didnt want to complain about that considering our seats were in the 7th row. but what i did see i did like i must say.
